The Simple Womans DayBook


Outside my window...It is dark, lol. 
Rainy and dreary earlier.

I am thinking...That I am SO HUNGRY!
Waiting for Good Ole Boy to get home for dinner.

I am thankful...For my slippers that are just so wonderfully comfortable on my tired, aching feet.

From the learning rooms...Weaver vol. 5, Chapter 9, Day 10.
Yesterday we made paper cutout snowflakes.
Apparently I've never taught the older girls how to make these?
Sis spray painted them after wards.

In the kitchen...Einstein is doing dishes and fighting with Hunny.
Pasties are in the oven. 
Cinnamon vanilla candle burning.
I am wearing... Blue fleece hoodie with Eyeore, pj bottoms and slippers

I am creating...A "hunny do list" for Good Ole Boy.

I am going...To go to bed early tonight. 
I've been so tired lately.

I am wondering...Why we suddenly have moths eating wool?

I am reading...The Shack by Wm. P. Young
 Farmer Boy - school
My side of the Mountain - school
The Wedding dress - lit with Sis 

I am hoping...That Einstein hurries out of this mood he's in.
Currently he is mad that I didn't let him go trick or treating so is lashing out.  

I am looking forward to...The Civil War Ball on Saturday!

I am hearing...Girls have a movie on Netflix - think its Barnyard.

Around the house...Halloween decorations are coming down and Thanksgiving ones are going up.
I have almost gotten the living room deep cleaned and organized! Just a bit left to do there.
Sis has started in the dinning room and done quite a bit in the shelving wall for organizing.
I worked there out today and got some done as well. 

I am pondering... How to fit in more craft time?

One of my favorite things...My new slippers! 

A few plans for the rest of the week:  School, Civil War Ball, Church, and work.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...


  1. The Civil War Ball sounds exciting! I've always wanted to go to one.

    We are always pondering how to fit more crafting time in around here too:)

    Glad to have found your blog!

  2. I read The Shack a few years back, but would like to read it again.

    Oh yeah, I need to get Thanksgiving decorations out. I totally missed Halloween ones! ha. Maybe next year. It comes around so fast. (Maybe I should just go straight to Christmas decorations! Hmm...)

  3. Visiting from The Simple Woman's link up. I love those pumpkins! Did you guys make those? Great job!

  4. PrairieJenn, The Ball was wonderful! I will be posting a few pictures soon. We had a great time and Good Ole Boys already talking to the Colonel and his wife about another, lol! :)
    So glad that you visited! Thank you!

    Lisa, I'm getting close to halfway in the shack. Not what I typically read but it is intriguing.
    There isn't much available for Thanksgiving decorations is there? Time does go fast and there are some seasons that I just don't get them out, to busy and no time. I really try though. For the kids. I want them to enjoy and remember this.
    Thanks for stopping by :)

    SavedByGrace, I'm so glad to have you visit. :)
    Thank you. Yes, we did carve the pumpkins. The 6 of us and the Mickey one was one of Sis's friends. They are all unique, lol. :) I love to carve pumpkins, it's fun to be creative with the family.

  5. I'm always wondering how to fit in more craft time too.
